This edition of Child Maltreatment builds on the terrific start provided by James Monteleone with an expansion that is up-to-date, complete, and provides the best available information from an extraordinary group of contributors. It is a "must," not only for specialists in the field of child abuse and neglect, but for all health professionals who provide care to children.
Richard D. Krugman, MD
Angelo Giardino, Randy Alexander, and their interdisciplinary team of colleagues have continued to improve on an already exceptional collection of essays focused on the nature, extent and seriousness of child maltreatment in the United States and other economically advanced countries. In addition to providing the reader with a deep understanding of the complex forces that contribute to child maltreatment, the two-volume set offers clinicians and policy makers state-of-the-art guidance in preventing and caring for children who become victims of abuse and neglect. Giardino, Alexander, and their colleagues are to be congratulated for their pioneering contributions in helping to halt the current epidemic of child maltreatment cases.
Richard J. Estes, DSW
Whether in an intensive care unit caring for a child abuse victim, providing training, or testifying as an expert witness, there is one resource that I know I can cite as a reliable reference, and that is Child Maltreatment. This is the most outstanding text of its kind and provides a complete review with relevant references on all aspects of the medical diagnosis and treatment of child abuse and neglect. I recommend Child Maltreatment to all members of an investigative multidisciplinary team and consider it a mandatory resource in any medical, social science, or criminal justice library.

We've found Child Maltreatment, the 2-volume set, really effective and worthwhile in juvenile investigations of crimes against children. The extensive photographs are very helpful in identifying abusive injuries of children. We have been able to educate ourselves well on the topic of child abuse.
Maryann Burgess, Captain
As a coroner and a manager of the child death review teams in our area, I've found the Child Maltreatment 2-volume set very helpful in examining and identifying cases of child abuse and neglect. The material presented will also prove useful in training other coroners to handle similar cases.

The third edition of Child Maltreatment should be an excellent resource for a wide range of professionals and caregivers, including those in pediatrics, family medicine, emergency medicine, psychiatry psychology, nursing, social service, law and law enforcement, education, and public health. These volumes should help first responders in diagnosis and management. The accompanying Photographic Reference volume is an excellent complement to the Clinical Guide and Reference volume. The Clinical Guide and Reference has 70 new contributors and exemplifies the multidisciplinary team approach to maltreatment. New material includes risks to children from Internet use, intimate partner violence, risks found in faith-based settings, preparing a case for court, preparing to be an expert witness, education of clinicians about child maltreatment, and research needs. The 42 chapters are divided among seven sections
… The "Physical Maltreatment" section begins with clear definitions of child maltreatment, its epidemiology, and the major changes in management since it was first brought to the attention of clinicians and legislators by C. Henry Kempe, MD, in 1962.
… Defining neglect has been difficult and controversial. The authors of the chapter "Neglect and Abandonment" usefully provide a clear definition. The "Sexual Abuse" section gives a good overview, followed by helpful chapters on interviewing, … medical examination, and sexually transmitted diseases.
… Chapter 35, which discusses the multiagency child fatality review team, including its historical development, should be read by all health care professionals.
… The two volumes belong in libraries of medicine, nursing, law, and social work. They are a useful resource for professionals who deal with children and their families and a valuable contribution to the field of child maltreatment and neglect.
Prasanna Nair, MD, MPH
As an expert witness in a recent child-abuse litigation case, it provided me with a wealth of information on … early child development.

GW Medical Publishing titles, especially Child Maltreatment, have played essential roles in law enforcement investigations. Every child abuse investigator and prosecutor should have them.
